The Mental and Physical Aspects of Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is a physically challenging sport. It is as much of a mental challenge as it is a physical challenge. A rock climber is always facing difficulties during a climb and has to co-ordinate his mind and body to overcome such obstacles. Rock climbers need to be task oriented. They have to work use maximum of their physical and psychological abilities to overcome the task ahead of them.

To rock climb is no easy task even though rock climbers make it look simple. While rock climbing the whole world seems to be against you and at times even your mind. The gravity force keeps pulling your body down making the climb hard. The time also is a major factor. More the time taken to climb, the more fatigue and more harder the climb becomes. Even the weather can be a big challenge, mentally and physically. Well, a good climber with a good physique needs to have strong will power to overcome the hurdles faced while rock climbing.

One needs to prepare the body well in advance for a climb. Days of practice and endurance training need to be put in before going for a climb. A rock climber needs to work on the biceps, abdomen, quadriceps and almost every other muscle in the body. While climbing, the rock climber may face contraction in the muscles this is mostly in the arms. A rock climber needs to have strong forearms. Another important physical aspect of rock climbing is the ability to have control over ones energy. The rock climbers need to control their energy and preserve it for the next step. In other words, every time a climber places a foot on the rock, he needs to use minimum energy to complete the climb. The climber needs to control how slow or how fast to move. One needs to decide the amount of energy to be spent for every movement made while rock climbing.

Weather also plays an important role during a rock climb. The weather does not only affect the body of a rock climber, but it can psychologically assist or break the climber. A nice pleasant weather will always be welcomed by the climbers. On the other hand, unpleasant conditions could break the morale of a climber. A climbers mind is working in all different directions at the same time. A good climber needs to focus on the task at hand. Concentration levels while rock climbing need to be extremely high. A rock climber has to pay attention to the footholds, the rope, gear, knots and minimize the stress on the body. This is achieved by applying various tactics at every step of the climb. In case of a problem a rock climber needs to keep cool and find a quick and suitable solution.

Rock climbing is not merely a sport. It is an endurance activity that tests the physical and psychological aspect of the climber at every step of the climb. A climber has to have strong will power and should be able to control the physical and mental strength.

Joong bong, the most versatile and easy to learn martial arts weapon

Joong Bong, The Most Versatile And Easy To Learn Martial Arts Weapon.

People have been picking up sticks to beat each other since time immemorial, but the joong bong, the Korean Middle staff, is something really special in the world of martial arts. This is the most commonly taught weapon in the Korean martial art of Kuk Sul Won, though tournaments and ease of use have brought the joong bong into other arenas, like Tae Kwon Do.

I got my first look at joong bong technique a few years ago, when I was interviewing one of the advanced students at a Kuk Sool Won school in Milwaukee. She was giving me the run down on the basic kicking and striking techniques used when something caught my eye. Next to the fans and tridents, most people wouldn’t have given the homely stick a second glance, but I could tell from the wear that this was a weapon that many students had trained with.

The joong bong itself varies depending on the school and the preference of the user. Usually, it is made out of wood or rattan and measures between 2 and half to three feet long. My friend mentioned that some heavy hitters like their joong bong to be made out of metal, and after I did a few passes with it, it makes sense; in terms of practicing, the heavier the stick is, the better the workout you’ll get.

She explained that the joong bong was the middle-sized staff that many students started off with, and is one of the easier weapons to master in the realm of Korean martial arts. She herself had started with the joong bong, and though she had progressed to a mastery of several other weapons, the joong bong remained one of her favorites. As I watched, she demonstrated some of the moves associated with this ancient weapon.

The joong bong is held at one end, rather than in the center. My friend emphasized that that this is used primarily for striking and as such, the tip should be aimed at the opponent’s neck for maximum effectiveness. Slowly, she took me through the four basic striking techniques that make up her joong bong practice and then she sped it up. As I watched in awe, she became the center of a whirling storm, the slow exercises she had been demonstrating turning into a fierce burst of activity.

She grinned at me when she finished up and asked if I cared to try. I was ready to go ahead so I stepped on the mat to face her, but she laughed.

“I was thinking about pairing you with one of our newer practitioners of joong bong,” she said and pointed at a thirteen-year-old boy, who was taking his own stick through the motions. I was going to laugh too, until I noticed how fast he was moving and how hard he could bring down his stick!
